Hi
I was trying to restore my windows Firefox bookmarks into Porteus; I had
stored them on a usb drive yet I don't see my usb drive showing within restore bookmarks function in Firefox.
Under Places>Computer I can see my usb's but under import backup>Restore>choose file, i don't see Computer for me to access the usb containing my saved bookmarks from Firefox Windows.
Can someone assist please? Thank you.

You mean sdb or sbd1? I don't see /mnt/sdb1 there,
I do see:
sdb, live, sda1, sda2, sbd, sdc1
Which folder within these should I be looking for? Thanks.
